I will look back.....

Some day I will look back and laugh at this post. It is probably TMI, but I feel the need to document it for my families sake.

Yesterday started off with a bang. And by bang I mean BARF. Once again the the Barfing Bed Bandit stikes again. Jason got the first blow from Graden. All over his back and arm. He was a trooper and just laid still so I could jump up and get a towel. Graden seemed fine after that. No fever, happy. So I got him his chocolate milk. It did not even have a chance to curdle before it ended up on my bathroom mat.

In the midst of all this I had a horrible feeling that I had forgotten something. I could not figure out what? It was when I was doing my first load of barf laundry that it hit me. Well, not really hit me, but as I quickly saw the water stop filling up my washer it dawned on me. "Did I pay the water bill?" Um, that would be a no. They had shut off our water. I had forgotten to pay it the night before. Stupid Biggest Looser. I wanted to get home to see it. Grrrr.... totally spaced it. My bad.

So I start to gather up the boys to head over to City Hall to pay it. Then I get sick. And not throwing up either. Did you know that when you have no water your toilet won't flush? You can piece together that puzzle. :(

I wait a while and decide to head out. (Our computer has a virus so it is at a friends house being fixed, so I could not use it to pay the bill)(As for this post, Jason hooked up our OLD GHETTO computer that takes 45 minutes to do anything) I have Graden covered in a towel, just in case. He barfs on Main St. Not bad. So by the time the girls get home from school our down stairs bathroom is officially a BIO HAZARD. Graden and I had both been sick several times by then.

Later in the day I sent a message to Jason. I am sure he appreciated the detail in which I laid out my day. He text back and said he was sorry. I wasn't. I was really proud of myself. I had handled it all with grace in my opinion. It was truly a laughable situation. A perfect storm of calamities all wrapped into 6 hours of a bad comedy.

I feel better today, Graden is not. He still has a fever, up chucked this morning, but is really sweet. Just lounging around and asking for more water. I love that boy.

I also left out another major story line that included a friend. I need to get back to my sicky. And Jason needs his lunch delivered!

7 SAY WHAT??????????????????:

Wow. Your should get the "Mom of the year" award. That definitely is an experience worth documenting. You are so great that you can look back and laugh, and it hasn't even been 24 hours. I hope everyone feels better soon!

Oh man! So yucky! That flu has been going around. My kids had it a few weeks ago. It hits hard and luckily does not stay long...but with NO WATER - What a nightmare.
I think you handled it great and hopefully you will laugh about it by next week!

P.S. Thanks for not posting pictures - HA HA

Wow! I see the comedy, but I'm still sorry you were both sick like that. Never fun, but good you could laugh at it.

Um, WOW. I haven't laughed so hard at a post in a while. I don't even know why it struck me as so funny. Just the whole truckin' to City Hall with your barfing 3-year old while you're running to find a bathroom...why didn't you call me? I could have taken your $$ down there or something! Thanks for the laugh, please don't be insulted! It has to only get better after that!!!
